SOS² Reptile Expo 2012

Postby Bushbaby » Sun Jan 08, 2012 3:19 am

Hi there

It's a new year and I have already started planning the next SOS² Reptile Expo to be held at Emperors Palace. It will once again be the 1st weekend in May, so diaries it so long!

Should there be anyone interested in exhibiting, please drop me an e-mail at bookings@reptileexpo.co.za

Thanks, looking forward to seeing you all there!

The Durban one was great. The people who exhibited all sold pretty well and the people who visited obviously brought enough money to buy what they wanted. The number of visitors was not what we expected but there is always room for improvement.

We were asked the very next day when we will be holding the next one so I guess the people who actually supported us thought it was worth while. The indigenous reptiles were the biggest sellers.

We will just never use that venue as we had problems with management and the security guards. Next time we will use a more user friendly venue.

In future this will be known as the Durban Spring Expo.

Just a quick question. Will the Durban Spring Expo be held in "Spring" this year instead of December. Looking forward to having another Expo here in KZN, as it is closer to home. Although I make it my duty to attend the SOS, even though it's a but of a drive up. Sorry if i'm a little of the topic.

Regards
Shaun

Shaun we appreciate your loyalty. The chances are pretty good that we will have a spring expo in Durban.

Bushbaby, I LOVE the new flyer, and not just from a herper’s perspective ;) Lovely, clean design, with a striking focal point. Who’s your designer?

Due to several requests, I have made a few single tables available for the expo. Should you just want a small stand with a few items to sell, prices start from as low as R350 for a single table. Bookings are starting to come in fast, and I know these will be snapped up in no time.

Should you be interested in exhibiting, please e-mail me at bookings@reptileexpo.co.za

Thanks
